The PSC experience is built upon the vision of a truly integrated school—racially, ethnically, economically and academically—that leads toward developing a just and equal society.

Students develop the social/emotional skills as well as the academic skills to collaborate and work with students from all backgrounds.

Recognizing that building a strong sense of community across all backgrounds is challenging, PSC is a small school with small classes. Teachers know thier students well and work with them to develop their social and emotional skills in the weekly Circles program.

Clear strategies for identifying each student’s academic needs are also developed within and across grade levels to ensure that each student grows and attains his or her promise. The small number of students in each grade level and the small number of students in each class ensure that all teachers know all students and can address individual needs as well as facilitate interactions among students.

The PSC middle school experience will prepare all students for a rigorous high school curriculum and the high school prepares all graduates for college. Just as importantly, the PSC experience creates socially aware students who can serve as ambassadors and leaders of a pluralistic society as they become young adults.


Principal's Message

    At Park Slope Collegiate we love learning! Our teachers don‘t just know their subjects, they love the way their subject helps us better understand the world and our role in making it a better place. We know that all knowledge comes from the experiences and ideas of generations of humanity and our collective ability to learn from one another. We believe that every child has the right to contribute to and to benefit from a diverse learning community. ​     Though it may seem a bit old school, we agree that separate will never be equal and we actively pursue a school community that is integrated across race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status and past academic performance. Within that community, we are committed to a rigorous academic curriculum that does not separate or track students based on test scores or performance. We are committed to the dignity of every student within our school and out in the world. As such, we take a united stand against racism and encourage our students, staff, and parents to stand together against injustice. As we prepare all of our students for college, we want to instill in them a strong sense of community and accountability to one another.
